Watched several vids and still isn’t clear: does the transition time slider also controls transition time when you switch the scenes manually?

DJ Y says:

I really like your video tutorial, I have chauvet obey 70 which I think it’s similar to obey 40 except that mine has a joystick that I can use for moving heads. I see that on the end of your video in 10:19 you have the effect that I would like to create on mine obey 70. As a matter of fact, I would like to create the same effect as it was created on the video I am attaching here by using chauvet ShowExpress, here is the link so my question is can I do that exact thing on my chauvet obey 70 ? can I have this one light chasing another ?

David Lawless says:


I’m wondering if u could help me.

I recently bought a swarm 5 FX and Obey 4 controller with a DMX cable. But I thought that once u set the light to d001 on the light that you can start using the RGBW/A manually.

But it doesn’t seem to work. It’s just a standard DMX cable I have but was told to get an XLR lighting cable instead. I didn’t think there was much of a difference.  

Is there something I am doing wrong with the set up. I would be very grateful if you could help me with some tips please. Thank you, Dave Lawless


I have problem: fade time is not working, what can I do??

Stephen Morton says:

OK. I see when you turn off each fixture to turn on the next for each scene the light stays on. My adj controller did this at first and now it turns of the fixture. Any idea why that is our how I get it back?
Thank you

Were having a gymnastic show with 5 scenes. The time between the scenes are not fix, it can be longer or shorter. What is the best way to program a chase of 5 scenes and simple jump to the next scene when the gymnastics are at the right place? Thanks, best regards Ivar from Norway
